Hello Linear Satellite lovers!

do any of the die-hard satellite operators want to work Mode A on AO7?

If you want and un-congested satellite pass that will give you good 
distance and plenty of time on the "Bird", then Mode A is the mode/bird 
to try.

Almost any type of an antenna will work, I am personally using a 3 
element HyGain 10m monobander for my receive, it is not perfect but it 
will do the trick, I have managed a contact into the UK with Paul, 
2E1EUB on AO7-a and I have also worked a few South American stations as 
well, Cuba which as frequency restrictions on 432Mhz cannot use AO7-b 
but they can work Mode A.

If anyone is up for a try, I am willing to make a schedule or two.
